3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the 2010 installment of Stogies and Stouts pouring deep dark with brown edges and thin mocha head. The aroma is kind of roasty to burnt with a molasses sweetness mixed in as well as a chocolaty earthiness. The taste is smooth and sweet with highly roasted malts mixing with sweet notes of molasses along with an earthy note I can’t put my finger on. It dries out a bit into the finish and after taste with dark roasted malts.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled from the tap at the Nashville Flying Saucer. Pours black with a dark brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has roasted malts and dark grains up front with a hint of underlying sweetness. Flavor does have a sweet potato note that works well with the dark grains and roasted malts.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Flying Saucer Memphis. Big and rich character, and I don’t mean the country band. Sweet and quite creamy. Not a trace of any sweet potato, but after seeing the canned yams at the brewery in Kiln, I had to give this try. I’d guess they add the thick body, maybe some of the sweetness. Otherwise, you’d just find this as a nice milky, creamy sweet stout. (#4052, 12/18/2010)

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ Avenue Pub. Aroma is straightforward Irish stout, nice coal and asphalt mellow roast and if I search I can find caramelized sweet potato. Ok not really. There is no discernible sweet potato character but the beer has solid body is well constructed. Very dry. Nice stout.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 24, 2010 Draft pint from Cooter Brown’s. Pours a very dark brown with a tiny tan head. The aroma isn’t particularly strong, but has notes of chocolate, roasted malt, cream, and coffee. The flavor is much stronger than the aroma leads you to believe, and is smoky, roast coffee, malts, and burnt toast. Creamy, smooth mouthfeel with medium-to-heavy body. Roasty, smoky finish and burnt toast aftertaste. Re-rate: May 21, 2010. I think this must have been too warm at Cooter Brown’s when I had it in September, because the sweet potato notes really came through this time. Bartender warned me and a few buddies that it would be an 8-minute pour and she was right. Beautiful dark opaque brown with a cascading brown head. The roasty and smoky notes I remembered mellowed out and were replaced with sweet potato, cream, toasted brown sugar, and just lightly roasted malts. So smooth and sweet, with some dark fruits coming through later and the creaminess growing. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a slick mouthfeel. Very nice beer.
